Are Stainless Steel Pots/pans Better For Avoiding Cross-contamination?

I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post this in...

I'm getting married in 3 weeks and we registered for some really nice nonstick pots and pans, but since it looks like I'm going to have to use separate pans, we're wondering if stainless steel would be safe for both of us to use if they are put in the dishwasher in between?

non-stick pans just aren't worth it. can't cook with them on very high heat (they'll release toxic fumes), can't clean them with anything abrasive in the event something does stick, can't get a good deglazed sauce... the list goes on and on. they're good for pancakes and eggs. other than that, I used hard anodized aluminum. stainless steel is another good option. with a bird in the house, I will *never* primarily use non-stick (just for the two uses listed above), but even without that, they don't cook the same.

I agree with Tiffany. Stainless steel is definitely the way to go, you can scrub it properly, and it's safer to use in every way.

Fumes from a non-stick can kill a bird, so we, likewise have no non-stick pots, irons, etc. in our house for the safety of our birds. It makes me think, they used to take a canary down into the coal mines. If the canary died, the miners knew to get out. The fact that fumes from non-stick can kill a bird bothers me :unsure:

I use cast iron. I've always loved it and always have used it. There is a rule in my house, however, gluten-free items in cast iron only! Same with wooden spoons; we have two sets. I also have some enameled cast iron which would be okay for both gluten and gluten-free since they are not porous.
